Child Enrichment Services

Children with developmental disabilities often don’t have the opportunity to engage in social and recreational activities with their peers.

We recognize how important these activities are in your child’s life to help them learn social skills and life skills, build self-esteem, make new friends and just have fun. Your child will be welcome to participate in appropriate enrichment programs such as:

Social Skills Activities

Social skills activities focus on structured activities focused on specific skills, such as social language, appropriate play and interaction with peers. Birthday parties can be arranged allowing the child to invite other children they’ve met at the Ability Center. Social Hangout is for teens only and encourages guided discussion on important topics.

Life Skills Classes

Our Life Skills Program addresses the skills needed for children to transition into independent adults and includes home management skills (cooking, cleaning, laundry, loading dishwasher), money management skills and employment readiness skills. For our older teens and young adults who successfully complete these programs, employment opportunities are available at our beautiful Illuminate Event Venue inside the Ability Center. Graduates from our life skills program are eligible to apply for paid employment at our Illuminate Event Venue in various capacities including guest relations, event set-up, catering, marketing, maintenance.
